At the Lodge

A good way to spend a day at Jozibanini will be simply to stay seated in a shady spot, binoculars in hand, watching the wildlife as it comes to one of the waterholes to drink.


Game Drives

For those who want to go further afield, a specially adapted open 4x4 safari vehicle is available for you to explore the area with your expert guide.


Game Walks

Highly recommended is taking a walk with your professional guide.  Typically this does not need to be strenuous, but a relaxed activity, taking time to look at animal tracks and antlions in the sand, pausing under a tree to discuss conservation and wildlife in a near-desert environment. For the more adventurous, tracking elephant and even lion on foot gives a fascinating insight into their lives and often an exciting up close experience with these magnificent animals.


Mountain Biking

Imagine you’re on a mountain bike enjoying the sounds and scents of the wilderness when your guide waves you to stop. Feeding casually ahead is a magnificent bull elephant – this is a road block with a difference. Your group waits patiently for the elephant to move off, which he does in due course, but it’s a good excuse to break for a picnic under a shady acacia tree. For once, time does not matter and the day is yours to lose in the African bushveld.  Game viewing by mountain bike is on the cards for Jozibanini. Deep Kalahari sands make much of this area inappropriate for biking, but geography and elephants have worked together to make it a possibility here.


The Look up Game Viewing Hide

By modifying a standard steel shipping container, including fitting it with a flush loo, and sinking it deep into the Hwange sands, Imvelo created a cool, secure place from which to watch wildlife coming to drink at the Jozibanini waterhole. The toe level experience with elephants is a thrill. Over full moons guests can even spend the evening in the blind watching the wildlife come down to drink with a backdrop of stars in a crystal sky, and if you're really enjoying yourself why not overnight in the blind -  what an incredible experience, not available anywhere else in the National Park!
